I have received a few emails with people asking how they can display their photos on this Message Board and so have created this Test Forum so you can experiment.
To display your photo on this Message Board you will need to upload your photo to some webspace.
Your Internet Service provider (ISP) may have supplied you with some free webspace and instructions on how to use it or many people like to use the free photo-sharing websites such as Photobucket, Flickr, Picasa etc which you sign up for and you can then upload your photos. A list of Photo-Sharing websites can be found at: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_photo_sharing_websites
Once you have uploaded your photos to your webspace or photo-sharing website then you just have to copy the web address of your photo into the Message Board. You can find the web address (URL) by viewing your uploaded photo in a web browser then ‘rightclick’ on the photo. Click ‘Properties’ and highlight and copy the ‘Address URL’.
Finally, go to the Message Board and paste the ‘Address URL’ of your photo into a thread. Highlight the ‘Address URL’ and click the little picture icon called ‘Insert Image’ and as if by magic your photo should appear when you click ‘Post Reply’ or ‘Preview’.
Photos sizes are generally kept to no more than 800 pixels across to make the Message Board readable at lower screen resolutions.
